The dictionary defines an usher as a person who shows someone to their seat. At St. Clare’s, an usher has a much more important role. It is the usher who greets current members and newcomers as they arrive for a church service, signaling the genuine welcome and warm hospitality that characterizes the St. Clare’s community.

If you would like to participate in greeting those who come through our doors, we’d love to have you join in this ministry of welcoming. To sign up or to get additional information, please contact John Renehan (, 248-924-0499) or Ann Putallaz (, 734-827-4443). And if you know someone at St. Clare’s whom you believe would make a good usher, please reach to them and ask them to consider serving in that role.
